***Disclosure: I received a copy of the Donkey Kong Country DVD and a party package for my review. Any opinions are 100% my own.***
Of course, we also had a Nintendo, and later on, a Super Nintendo. One of our favorite games was definitely Donkey Kong. I have always had a thing for monkeys, and this lovable character made his way into our hearts. We also loved the Donkey Kong cartoon series that was played early on Saturday mornings. My brother and I woke up super-early, probably much to my sleeping parents' dismay, and raced to the TV to watch cartoons. And try and kill each other in the process, but hey...what siblings don't?!
When I found out that Donkey Kong Country was coming to DVD, I was super excited. My own kids love anything primate-related, and I knew they'd just love his crazy antics. And I was excited about a little blast from the past, even if it does make me feel really darn old!
On August 20, 2013, (TODAY!) the hit CGI series, Donkey Kong Country, will be available on DVD for the first time ever. Featuring four classic episodes and a run time of 90 minutes, the DVD will be available major U.S. retail stores for $9.99.
If you'd like to check out Donkey Kong Country for yourself, please head to Walmart, Target and other major retailers today!
